Blake Shelton Makes History

Published On November 7, 2017 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Blake Shelton has made history with his new album, Texoma Shore. For the first time ever, six of the songs from the project simultaneously hit the charts at country radio, five of which (“At The House,” “I Lived It,” “Turnin’ Me On,” “Money” and “Why Me”) made their world premieres at iHeartRadio and other country stations last week leading up to album launch. While the other songs are making their chart debuts, Blake’s current single, “I’ll Name The Dogs,” has climbed into the Top 10 in just eight weeks and boasts over 17 million streams.

“At the end of the day, I make music so that it can be heard. It’s amazing that so many songs from a brand new album have been embraced so early. I’m proud of this record and the work that went into making it, and I’m proud that already it means something to my fans. Thanks to country radio for the support.”

Blake celebrated the official launch of Texoma Shore in Nashville on Friday, November 3rd with a Pandora “Sounds Like Country” show. Prior to taking the stage, the superstar hand-delivered a copy of the new album to an Amazon Prime customer who had pre-ordered the album via Amazon Prime Now.
